Training Context

As a consequence, the Competence Centre designed a training to help these international talents integrate the Luxembourg legal framework. The programme also enables local talents to specialise in specific legal fields.


At the end of the training, participants will have grasped the subtleties of the Luxembourg legal framework whilst also having had the opportunity to gain extensive legal knowledge in a chosen field of expertise.

The training follows a modular system including 2 mandatory modules that can be completed with up to 4 optional topics.
